Today, unfortunately our players spend their daily stipend on cabs and transportation to the training field. We believe that by getting a minivan we can better manage their transportation and help them shorten their trip to the stadium, hence keep more money for themselves.
This will make a significant difference in their lives. A minivan can cost from $15K to $25K. However, we will welcome anything your research and means can provide. Anything will help.
Also from an environment standpoint, this will significantly reduce their carbon footprint. Hemlè is set to become a pernicious polluter if nothing is done. 80 trips to the stadium each day, twice a day. 160 cab rides per day, 800 rides each week, 3200 a month. That's a lot... With a minivan, we will take out more than 38,400 cab rides a year. That’s not at all negligible. We know the average lifespan of such minivan in this region can be 10 to 15 years. You can imagine the impact.
